2nd Entry for Apr 29, 2011

In case you're wondering what has happened to the 3rd and 4th posts from this session,  a glitch in Blogger's systems has meant that a couple of posts from the past 2 days have been pulled, but should return. If not, I'll re-post them in a few days.

(Most of the studies documented on this blog are very short and direct. But for people who are interested in investigating doing longer figure drawings of their own, I am teaching a workshop from 9 a.m to 4 p.m daily May 16 -20  at the Toronto School of Art.  It's called "Bodies in Context".  Each day features a different model, set up in a tableau with props and backdrop elements, to explore narrative and symbolic  situations.
Good figure drawing practice, lots of time for one-on-one feedback and coaching, and an excellent opportunity to consider content - and the potential  meaning of figures - within your work.
There are a couple of places left, and for details, check in at the TSA's website.)

These are 10-minute studies, all done with compressed charcoal on 18 x 24" cartridge paper.
